March 26, 2019

After School is teaming up with partner #ICANHELP (icanhelpdeletenegativity.org) to launch a live Twitter chat (#teensandsocial) on April 3 at 6 PM Central, 4 PM Pacific. Teens, social media companies, parents, teachers, and subject matter experts are all invited and encouraged to participate.

Questions asked during the upcoming live chat will include:
